Ok, so I did it. I finished in under 40 minutes, woulda liked 36 but I made a horrible mistake. I ate a donut they had at the pre-race party, BIG MISTAKE. Sugar overload - why did I do that. Anyhow, it was really super hot and humid, almost the whole race with no shade. The second mile was through the woods, so thank goodness for the shade and a breeze, made up some time during that mile in the shade. I just couldn't find a good pace cuz it was so hot. I guess if I really want to run, spring and fall are the optimal times to do it. But the important thing was I ran it, passed over 1/3 of the people running it and finished the last half-mile with a good pace for a great finish. Glad it's done and I am so proud of myself. I did it !!!!
